While there is overlap in home inspections, like any trade there are a lot of differences too—individual firms and individual inspectors might do things a little bit differently and bring their own skills and personalities to the property. We would like to explain what our process is so as to ensure that all involved know what to expect moving forward.
You may have found in your home inspection report a note about the typical design life of the furnace, AC or heat pump being close to or nearing the end of its intended design life. What is being said here?
How often should furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps, boiler systems, ductless heat pumps, and the like be serviced? Most inspectors and HVAC contractors/specialists will advise that your furnaces, air conditioners and the like be serviced annually. American Home Shield, Angie’s List and others concur, especially in areas with 3+ distinct seasons, which is what we see here in the Pacific Northwest.
